Inside the Cockpit Over Cape Coral Sun, 05 Aug 2012 16:34:44 +0000

I’ve shot near a thousand high performance boats and yachts in my career with hours of flight time in various helicopters. I often get asked for ride alongs or insights on what its like to be in the cockpit of a helicopter chasing fast-moving water crafts worth, at times, a couple million dollars. Its an expensive proposition; shooting powerboats. Helicopters are expensive when you have to rent them by the hour. I’ve shot out of R-22s, R-44s and Bell Jet Rangers. While I spend most of my time in R-44’s I do enjoy the ultimate stability of a heavier craft like a Bell Jet Ranger. Which brings me to an insight on aerial photography.
Shooting from the air can be fun but it is serious work. For one it can be dangerous. Seat-belts are required. Secondly its actual work, which cannot be over looked. But finally, it does require a certain skill-set. I’ve shot for different clients, like Florida Powerboat Club, Taylor Publishing and Poker Runs America to name a few. Despite the amount of flight and the amount of crafts and buildings I have shot, for either photography or video, some things never change. Its always intense and one person on the helicopter always feels the effects of the excessive g-force impacting their bodies by the end of the flight. Well here is a short video to take you along for the ride.

CBC Commercial Video Mon, 05 Mar 2012 19:54:39 +0000

Central Broward Construction contracted BriteSide Studio to create a custom commercial video. We started with pre-production, concept, storyboard and completed the post production which included sound scoring, special effects, 3D animations and incorporating company provided assets to help tell the story of CBC. The production side of this video lasted over a nine month period which included the time-lapse of the store and commercial photography to use in the animations. There were a lot of challenges to the production portion of this project as there was a demolition then building of a new store all occurring simultaneously. The challenge we were presented with was keeping the cameras focused on one spot long enough to make a meaningful and effective time-lapse that fit into the storyboard. From considering satellite images of the site to Google street-views we were able to properly prepare to capture the elements of the time-lapse which included over 28,000 individual images. Most of the images in the video were retouched or photo restoration was completed, particularly on the company provided historic images.
